Faith has just stepped out into the limelight in her first year at Loganholme State School. Last Tuesday night she competed in the year 5 speech finals. She was up against five other finalists to deliver a speech on her chosen topic of ‘A Great Australian’. The speech was to be as close to 3 minutes as possible. Faith had prepared a great speech on who are the great Australians in our community. She had her speech cards ready and presented an impassioned plea for all of us to be like the members of our community who deserve our applause; the teachers, firemen and volunteers.
One of the real tests is to get as close to 3min for maximum points. 15sec on either side is AOK for the maximum time points of 30. While all her competitors did well Faith ‘nailed it’ as this time schedule shows. Click on the pictures to see a close-up.
You will see Faith with her close friend from school, Tia Porter, who was also a winner, picking up first place for the grade 4. Tia’s speech was on the topic “Books: are they redundant?”. She did a wonderful job convincing us to be avid readers. Clicking on the photos above will take you to an album of their adventure in the speech finals.
